Antonio Méndez Esparza (Director, Life and Nothing More)

I realized how difficult it is to make a film like this and how much you have to push, and even thought independent filmmaking is much about love, passion, and a desire to create something beautiful, there is something also in the director that’s kind of ugly. That’s why I thought movies like mother! or Phantom Thread were so truthful in different ways, because there is something about the act of creation that’s difficult. Even thought for me making the movie was a beautiful experience, I think I need to become a better person. That’s not to say I put everyone through torture, but sometimes you become a little ungrateful, to an extent, while you are making the movie.
